Trump sounds off after 3 CNN employees resign over retracted Russia story

President Donald Trump took to Twitter early Tuesday to sound off after three employees on CNN’s new investigative unit resigned Monday over a retracted online story regarding the Senate’s Russia investigation.

"Wow, CNN had to retract big story on 'Russia,' with 3 employees forced to resign," he wrote. "What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS!"

He added later: “Fake News CNN is looking at big management changes now that they got caught falsely pushing their phony Russian stories. Ratings way down!”

He continued: “So they caught Fake News CNN cold, but what about NBC, CBS & ABC? What about the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost? They are all Fake News!”

Thomas Frank, a veteran reporter who wrote the story; his editor, Eric Lichtblau, who recently came from the New York Times; and Lex Haris, the man who oversaw the CNN Investigates unit and has worked at CNN since 2001, chose to depart Monday. Frank and Lichtblau worked out of the CNN D.C. bureau; Haris was based in New York.

A spokesman for CNN said: “In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication.”

The story, which linked Anthony Scaramucci, a hedge-fund manager close to Trump, to a Russian investment fund allegedly being investigated by a Senate intelligence committee, did not go through the proper fact-checking process, CNN said. The retracted story cited a single anonymous source.

“The story wasn’t solid enough to publish as-is,” one of the people briefed on the investigation told CNN media writer Brian Stelter.

As The Washington Post noted, this mistake provided right-wing media fodder that feeds into the perception that CNN is improperly going after Trump. Breitbart dubbed the news “Very Fake News” in a headline.

In the past couple of years, CNN has been aggressively beefing up its investigative forces.

“CNN needs to be an organization that breaks news, not just an organization that covers breaking news or talks about breaking news on television,” Andrew Morse, the executive vice president of editorial for CNN/U.S. and general manager of CNN digital worldwide, told NPR in January. “There’s no better way to do that than to invest in investigative reporting.”

Trevor Noah on Philando Castile footage: ‘It broke me’

The “Daily Show” detoured from comedy on Wednesday, as Trevor Noah talked frankly and emotionally about the released dashcam footage in which a Minnesota man was killed by police last year during a traffic stop.

“It broke me,” Noah said, saying he was moved by the final part of the footage showing the death of Philando Castile. In that part of the video, the 4-year-old daughter of Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, is whisked away from the car after witnessing the shooting. 

Noah had addressed the verdict on Monday’s show, Slate reported. Jeronimo Yanez, the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Castile, was found not guilty of second degree manslaughter Friday.

“‘You shot four bullets into him, sir.” It’s ... mindblowing that Diamond Reynolds has just seen her boyfriend shot in front of her — she still has the presence of mind to be deferential to the policeman. In that moment, the cop has panicked, but clearly black people never forget their training,” Noah said. “Still in that moment the black person is saying sir. “‘I respect you, sir. I understand what I need to do, sir.’” The same thing Philando Castile did.”

Ellen DeGeneres calls out audience member for dishonesty

Ellen DeGeneres tested the honesty of her audience in a recent show, and most of them passed. The one woman who didn’t was embarrassed with a reprimand on national television.

With “Ellen” in its 14th season, DeGeneres gave her audience members the chance to choose one item from the Ellen Shop, the Huffington Post reported. What the audience didn’t know was that DeGeneres had hidden cameras trained on the table, filming the shoppers as they chose between hats, mugs and other trinkets. A sign at the table reminded the shoppers that they were limited to one free item.

“I just wanted to see how honest my audience was,” DeGeneres said during the show’s segment.

Most of the guests chose one item and one woman offered to pay for a second item, the Huffington Post reported. But a woman named Nancy failed the test.

DeGeneres played back the video to the audience and called out Nancy for taking more than one item. DeGeneres then had the embarrassed woman placed in a special chair on stage and lectured her about the importance of honesty.

It was awkward, but it’s a safe bet that Nancy learned her lesson.

Lorde confirms she reviewed onion rings via Instagram

The truth finally can be told. Not only is Lorde a singer, she also is a critic of onion rings.

>> Read more trending news

Lorde confirmed her secret double life on Thursday night’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Entertainment Weekly reported. Last week, the New Zealand publication Newshub revealed that the Instagram account @onionringsworldwide may have been operated by Lorde.

Lorde was appearing on the show to sing and promote her new album, “Melodrama.” Asked by Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, Lorde confessed about the onion rings, explaining she did not know her side job would become public.

“I have to explain for a second. Here’s the thing; I sort of naively didn’t realize it would be ‘a thing’ that I was going to different places and trying the onion rings at each of those places,” Lorde said. “It’s me, it’s me.”

Lorde said she stopped reviewing onion rings via Instagram, Entertainment Weekly reported. “It was fun for five seconds,” she said. But she has no plans to exclude the rings from her diet.

“I’m still going to keep eating onion rings because they’re my favorite,” she said.

Demi Moore reveals she's missing her two front teeth for an unusual reason

Demi Moore appeared on “The Tonight Show” on Monday night to promote her new movie “Rough Night,” and ended up letting fans in on a little-known personal secret about herself.

“You sent us a photo and it’s the most insane thing I’ve ever seen,” host Jimmy Fallon said before holding up a picture of Moore missing a front tooth. “How did this happen?”

“I sheared off my front teeth,” Moore explained. “I’d love to say it was skateboarding or something really kind of cool, but I think it’s really something that’s important to share, because I think it’s literally, probably after heart disease, one of the biggest killers in in America, which is stress. Stress sheared off my front teeth. But, in an effort to get ready for you, I wanted to make sure my teeth were in.”

Although the photo featured Moore missing just one front tooth, the actress made it clear that she’s actually missing both of them. She went on to explain that her children “love” seeing her toothless.

“They love seeing me without my teeth,” she said, “because they think it makes me look more vulnerable and more human.”

In 2010, Moore shared that one of her front teeth had fallen out, but the second one finally followed more recently after she “literally knocked it out.”

“It was almost like it fell out and my warranty was up. I swear!” she said. “Thank God for modern dentistry. All of you who go out and practice modern dentistry—thank God!”

Lohan’s new hairstyle is for her upcoming role on the new show, “Sick Note” according to US Weekly. Though it’s unlikely that Lohan took a pair of shears to her own head, fans are still digging the new look, even if it is just a wig.

“Your hair is so beautiful @lindsaylohan,” one follower wrote.

Another fan added, “Ur hair looks so good!”

In the upcoming U.K. show, Lohan will play Grint’s boss’s daughter. Grint is playing a down-on-his-luck insurance agent who is misdiagnosed as terminally ill and keeps the accidental news a secret from friends and family. The show is set to air in the fall in the U.K., and Lohan will make her debut next year.
